The Skirt Every Girl Needs

If I have one go-to for the hot days of summer, it's my American Apparel jersey pocket skirt.  It's got to be the easiest thing in my closet.  I've tucked in button-ups, t-shirts, and tanks tops...you can wear it high-waisted, slouchy, put all kinds of treats/snacks in the pockets.  And it's SSSSSOOOOO comfortable!  My assistant, who's pregnant, recently bought it in three colors. How versatile!  My favorite way to wear it is with an easy v-neck t-shirt (like the gal pictured here) and a statement necklace like the one below at Anthropologie.  The one drawback is that it is so lightweight, that sometimes you might be walking down the Opry Mills mall and not know that the back might be hiked up above your butt cheek.  It may have happened to someone recently. I'm just saying...I knew annoying-dead-sea-salts-lotion-kiosk guy was being a little too friendly...

If this particular skirt is a little short for your lifestyle, a longer alternative is this guy.  Also, if your budget doesn't allow for a $30 skirt that's essentially a t-shirt, they have a really good alternative at Target in about 14 colors for $10.  

Stormy Sea Necklace at Anthropologie for $48
